You just can’t keep a good guy (doll) down!
We’ve heard rumblings now for a while about what was being affectionately referred to as CHUCKY 7, the next & latest in the CHILD’S PLAY series. Back when we had Nick Antosca on the Shock Waves podcast, he let it slip that his CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE writer Don Mancini was prepping the new movie. And it looks like it’s finally set to go before cameras and arrive just in time for Halloween!
Our friends over at Entertainment Weekly broke the scoop that CULT OF CHUCKY, the 7th installment in the CHILD’S PLAY series, will begin principal photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on Jan. 9. Last time we saw Chucky was for the surprise hit CURSE OF CHUCKY, which came out on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital simultaneously as the CHUCKY box set. There was something so cool about getting a CHILD’S PLAY box set and it including a brand new movie. That film told the story of Nica (played by Brad Dourif’s daughter Fiona) and also featured a post-credit scene (in the unrated version) that brought back Alex Vincent as Andy from the first 2 films! Looks like they’ll both cross paths in CULT OF CHUCKY.
According to EW, the plot revolves around Nica being committed to “an asylum for the criminally insane where she has been confined for the past four years and is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when Nica’s psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
Below you’ll find a announcement teaser!
CULT OF CHUCKY will arrive this Fall, just in time for Halloween! Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted!
